Phil Moss

Marine Superintendent

Phil comes to BMML via a career as deck officer on tankers, mainly, but also Ro-Ro ferries, Dive Support Vessels and dredgers. He then spent several years in the offshore oil and gas industry in the control room of a floating production platform in the UK sector of the North Sea before making the move ashore to manage the QHSE aspects of a fleet of high-end seismic research and offshore construction vessels.

Having always had a particular interest in maritime safety and safety management principles, he draws upon experience and knowledge in both shipping and oil & gas to develop and continually improve safety performance in systems, equipment and the people on board.

MOTION

MOTION

A monohull form has been selected to minimise accelerations caused by roll motions, reflecting considerations the SOV will be on DP 80 % of the time at speeds between 0-5 knots.

SEAKEEPING

SEAKEEPING

The bow section has been lowered to create a V-shape. This offers significantly reduced slamming, facilities inclusion and improved operation of the bow thrusters. The strong V-shape in the frames in the aft ship reduce slamming occurrence, while the concentration of volume in the mid ship region achieve a slender aft.

EFFICIENCY

EFFICIENCY

The hull requires less installed power than a conventional PSV thanks to its symmetrical wind profile and efficient four split switchboard system. The four split main switchboard ensures an efficient generator distribution offering more power in the event of a single switchboard failure.

SAFE TRANSFER

SAFE TRANSFER

The primary solution is a motion compensated access gangway system mounted on the port side. Its managing software is aligned with the vessel’s DP system to accommodate gangway motion limits. For a high level of redundancy alternative transfer methods are included, including helicopter access and a daughter craft.

LOGISTICS

LOGISTICS

All internal spaces have been designed with logistical or personnel flow in mind. Spaces used for work and accommodation on board should be optimised for reasons of efficiency. A well routed work flow supports an improved working environment yet preserves a high convenience level.

COMFORT

COMFORT

Accommodation areas are located amidships to minimise vertical accelerations (15 % below a conventional PSV). The vessel accommodates engineers whose previous experience may be land-based. Avoidance of seasickness and perception of a comfortable working environment will influence their acceptance of extended stays at sea.
